Mark Ricci had the pleasure of watching a beautiful Red-tailed Hawk.

Mark Ricci noticed the big hawk land on a wire.

Then the Red-tailed Hawk spotted something, something tasty to eat!

The hawk swooped down and nabbed this rodent.

It ate the rodent, tossed away the fur, and then returned to the wire to look for its next meal.

To hear the screaming calls of these hawks, here's a link to the Cornell Lab of Ornithology. They even have a recording of an 11 day old chick. https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Red-tailed_Hawk/sounds

Thanks to Mark for allowing me to share his photos with you here.

      Hi Tony, I emailed Mark and gave him your contact email. I haven't heard back from him either. I will try again.
